Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport
213. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the measures he is taking to address the lack of parking at Sallins and Naas railway stations (details supplied); and if he will make a statement on the matter. [48404/19]
224. To ask the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport the extent to which parking and-or other facilities are adequate and need to be provided respectively to serve the Sallins and Hazelhatch rail route to Dublin; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [48508/19]
I propose to take Questions Nos. 213 and 224 together.
As the Deputies are aware, the National Transport Authority (NTA) has statutory responsibility for the planning and development of public transport infrastructure and services in the Greater Dublin Area. Iarnród Éireann receive Exchequer funding via the NTA in relation to the provision of car parking at train stations on the heavy rail network in the GDA, including Hazelhatch and Sallins and Naas railway stations.
Noting its responsibility in the matter, I have forwarded the Deputies questions to the NTA for direct reply. Please advise my private office if you do not receive a response within ten working days.
